Living Room Looks

Let me introduce Miss Violet.

Miss Violet

She has pride of place on my living room wall.  Perhaps you saw her coyly peeking around the edge of the Christmas tree.  She belonged to a wonderful friend of mine, Miss Maggie.  Miss Maggie has gone on to her heavenly reward now, but I have my memories, and Miss Violet, to cherish.

Behind the tv, is a beautiful grapevine cross.


Over the laundry closet, my pretty purple clock.

Chaney is Grandmama's maiden name.

Over the couch is this beauty:

When my aunt gave it to me, it was a boring black.  But , I could envision how beautiful it could be.

And I was right!

On the short wall, to the left of the kitchen bar, is the gorgeous “Pretty in Purple” original oil, by my Mama.


When I sit in my recliner, Miss Violet is almost directly in front of me, and my

 Just happens to be my middle name.  (Could that be why I love it???)

is in front of me to my left.

And you already know my windows.


Now, recently, I have upgraded my furniture.

The old gray cabinet went bye bye, and this gorgeous old (the good kind of old) marble topped dresser from

DD1 and DD2’s Great Aunts, came into my possession.  I was sternly warned NOT to let anything happen to it! It is only a LOAN.

And in the corner, my Granny’s Corner cabinet, was entrusted to my care, in the same way.  I am blessed!

20150311_151837  Now that my recliner has been upgraded from old blue to this maroon, elegant one, I am all set for living room furniture.  (Except the wing back recliner is actually too narrow for my um,,,, statuesqueness??)  And I really, REALLY want the PURPLE leather one I found on Craig’s List!  Stay tuned!
